Trump says reporter's pen 'could have been a knife'



With evidence clearly showing Donald Trump's campaign manager grabbing a reporter, Trump is trying a new tactic: The pen Michelle Fields carried could have been a weapon.

"That could have been a knife," Trump said Wednesday morning on Fox News, referring to the March 8 incident in Jupiter, Fla.

During a CNN town hall on Tuesday Trump said: “She had a pen in her hand, which Secret Service is not liking because they don’t know what it is, whether it’s a little bomb,” Trump said. “Michelle Fields, by the way, is not a baby.”

Pens, Trump told Anderson Cooper, "can be very dangerous."
